Practicing Doesn’t Make Perfect

Practice doesn’t make perfect. According to studies by the Barna Foundation and the Census Bureau, people who cohabitate before marriage—that’s half of all adults under the age of 30—are more likely than others to get divorced, and 60 percent of second marriages eventually split up. With that kind of failure rate, perhaps it’s time to stop practicing and get into the game for good. Marriage is for life.
